R&B singer Bruno Mars’ court date to face a felony charge of drug possession has been postponed for a second time.
The Just The Way You Are star was arrested in Las Vegas in September after a bathroom attendant at the Hard Rock Hotel allegedly caught him with a bag of white powder, which tested positive for cocaine.

Mars, real name Peter Hernandez, was due to appear in a Sin City courtroom on 18 November but his lawyer asked for the date to be rescheduled.

At the rearranged hearing on Tuesday, the singer’s legal aid asked the judge to push back the court date again to allow Mars’ Los Angeles-based lawyer to take part in the case.

The new date is now set for 4 February.
